Because I'm a smoker and a magician, I fool around with a lot of ciggarette magic. But I am having trouble finding a literary resource for ciggarette magic and an apperance for a lit cigarette, the couple apperance I do know can only be done with an unlit ciggarette. Any suggestions? Are the references listed above good for these types of appearances?
Keith Clark's book is the way to go. As for appearing a lit cigarette, there are gimmicks out there that will accomplish that. Some are still available like a simple Lit Cigarette Producer.
However you do have a limited amount of time to make the production.
Then there are electronic methods which are taught in the book. However, most of those gimmicks (droppers, holders, etc) are no longer on the market which means you are going to need to make them yourself, or have someone do it for you.
The good thing to know, is most of the stuff is pretty basic in terms of inner working so for the handy person, can be made with little difficulty.
